Take the Fuel Challenge
Are you up to the Fuel Challenge?
At Mercedes-Benz Trucks, trucks are designed to constantly improve upon efficiency. Investment, fuel consumption, maintenance and repairs all have an impact on your revenue, as does the vehicle’s residual value. The Actros is designed around reducing costs and improving efficiency.
During the entire service life of your vehicle, the cost of fuel will account for about 50-60% of driving-related expenses. The Actros is the undisputed leader where profitability is concerned. Continuous development in new fuel-saving technologies helps to reduce costs, maximising profits.
The Actros Fuel Challenger makes a real contribution to reducing fuel consumption by 9%. When paired with Fleetboard, and a more economical driving style these savings increase by up to 15%. Take the Fuel Challenge today to see how much you could save compared to your current fleet.
What could your business save?
Fuel costs make up around 50-60% of the total vehicle costs over the entire life cycle of a vehicle. Thanks to innovative technology, intelligence and efficient further development, the Actros is unbeaten in terms of fuel consumption.
Besides fuel savings, CO2 savings are currently among the greatest challenges in road-based haulage operations. The Actros reduces CO2 emissions, proving that economical transport operations can also be sustainable and environmentally friendly.
A fuel efficient driving style significantly increases the overall efficiency of the Actros. Fleetboard objectively assesses the driving style and individual coaching sessions pinpoint where a saving of 15% in fuel consumption could be achieved.
The Actros’ innovative technology
Second generation engines
1,100 litres of fuel and approximately 3 tonnes of CO2 saved per year1 – the latest generation engine in the Actros ensures your business is as efficient as possible. And now, fuel consumption has been reduced by a further 3% in the latest generation engine.
Fuel saving technology
Predictive Powertrain Control (PPC) is just one innovative system that is designed to reduce fuel consumption in the Fuel Challenge. Constantly scanning the topography ahead and using GPS, the Actros Fuel Challenger optimises drive to achieve additional fuel savings of up to 5%. Allied to the Fleetboard truck telematics system, fuel consumption can be further reduced.
Designed to reduce fuel
The Actros Fuel Challenger has been designed to reduce fuel costs. Lighter yet stronger materials saves weight resulting in increased economy in everyday operations. Whilst sophisticated aerodynamics, honed over millions of kilometres in a wind tunnel, reduces drag and rolling resistance.
